Motorola reportedly planning to launch four new Edge smartphones in 2022
Motorola returned to the flagship sphere with the Moto Edge and Edge Plus last year. The company followed up with the Motorola Edge 30 (Moto Edge Plus 2022) last month, which offers even more impressive specifications. It appears the Lenovo-owned brand is planning to launch even more smartphones under the Edge brand in 2022.
According to Evan Blass (via 91Mobiles), Motorola is working on four new smartphones under the Edge brand. The first is the Moto Edge 30 Ultra, code named Frontier. Thanks to previous leaks, we already know quite a lot about the phone, including its design and hardware. The phone Moto Edge 30 Ultra is expected to be the most powerful model in the Edge 30 lineup, featuring a 6.67-inch FHD+ POLED display, an unannounced flagship Snapdragon chipset (the SM8475), a 200MP primary shooter, and a 4,500mAh battery with 125W fast wired charging support. The report notes that the Moto Edge 30 Ultra isn’t expected to arrive until Q3 2022.
